Independent Advice and Politics

This subject was brought somewhat close to home last weekend, when I discovered that my neighbour, Les, was actually Dr Les King, the foremost expert on drugs misuse and a former head of the Drugs Intelligence Unit in the Forensic Science Service.  On Sunday, the street was parked up with impatient satellite vans and news crews awaiting their turn.

Jerry Fishenden makes a broader point lucidly on his blog.  Just because you don’t like the science doesn’t mean you can say it’s not science. It doesn’t work like that.

And, of course, it was highly amusing to read about Alan Johnson so ably and unwittingly demonstrating the inherent weaknesses in his own Identity Card programme.  All praise to the LSE’s Dr Edgar Whitley.
